Firsts In Flight: A Hidden History
Whatcom Museum - Old City Hall, Bellingham, WA - Bellingham. To Aug 4
Building on the success of the 2016 film Hidden Figures, about the African American women who were the mathematicians behind John Glenn’s first orbit, this delightful photo-documentary show reveals not only the fi rst women pilots (before and beyond Amelia Earhart), but the first welders, rocket scientists, and Boeing test pilots. In this exhibition organized in cooperation with the Morehead Planetarium & Science Center and the Museum of Flight, visitors can celebrate our overlooked pioneers of aviation.
